We decided as the forecast looked ‘ok’ for last weekend to head out to the Yorkshire Dales once again and take in some of the Grassington Festival that is on until the 29th of June.

After putting up our tent at a local campsite we started out for a saturday walk. There were cows amongst the trees and they were easily spooked by us just walking past. They looked lovely in the sunlight.

As I’ve pointed out before the landscape is wonderful around the Dales and full of wildlife. Oyster catchers, Lapwings and Curlews seemed to be everywhere.

I thought the lines on the land (above) were quite interesting as well as the local houses and plant-life.

In the evening we had booked tickets to see the band Hope and Social whom we knew little about apart from the fact that the independent billed them as ‘one of the Uk’s top five Live bands’. They were on in the town hall which was also decked using the festival theme of flowers and umbrellas.

The band lived up to their billing and infact if you’re interested you can hear the concert they did on the night here. The lead singer did an amazing acoustic number before leading the band into the audience and finally bringing half of the local community back onto the stage to play about 4 numbers that they had been rehearsing together for some days. There was a great cross section of ages who all seemed to be enjoying the atmosphere.

The village looked great with all the umbrella installations everywhere.

Even the local sweetshops are a little unusual ! More to come in a couple of days.
